C'mon folks, there's no good excuse for riding in jeans when you can pick up a pair of pants (sorry, I just can't bring myself to use the term "pant") designed specifically for motorcycle use for all of $43 USD. The good folks at NewEnough are closing out these Tour Master jean-cut pants, which have a
fully lined waterproof 600 denier shell with 1680 denier "ballistic" knee and seat panels, and CE-approved knee armor. That's a lot of weather and crash protection for $43 bucks. If you're one of hold-outs still riding in shred-at-the-first-sight-of-tarmac denim, get thee to this page ASAP and save yourself some $$ and maybe a lot of skin.
As a service to my fellow motorcyclists, I've begun posting information on sales and closeouts on quality motorcycle gear. I get this information via subscriptions to email notices and newsfeeds of some of my favorite vendors, and I also stumble across this information during my daily travels on various online forums, etc. Unless otherwise noted, I haven't used or tested this gear; I am simply giving a "hey, lookee here!" on what appears to me to be a good deal on quality stuff from a good vendor. Be an informed consumer and research before buying.
